With the holidays approaching, many people are wondering how they’re going to hold a holiday celebration with current restrictions on gathering sizes due to COVID-19. Companies and social groups are having to rethink their traditional plans of large parties, and it can be challenging to find something that everyone will enjoy that is unique.
We can help! Hold a private Holiday Painting Class followed by dinner and drinks at The Foothills Event Center.
Your Holiday Painting Class comes with everything you need, including paint, all the right brushes, a disposable apron, 20 x 16” canvas, your own easel, and easy to follow, step-by-step instructions from our class instructor.
The Foothills Event Center’s facility is large enough to comfortably accommodate your celebration, with plenty of room for your guests to remain safe and physically distant.

You might even make an evening of it by hosting dinner and drinks for your guests after the painting class, either on the patio or indoors. We encourage you to schedule your painting party now before the weather turns and take full advantage of our covered patio.
Talk to us about how to fully utilize our facility. We can transform our space into a fun and memorable holiday evening, allowing plenty of room for your group to have a memorable time and still be physically distanced.
